A. The opening phrase should modify Selma Lagerlof - Incorrect
B. A conjuction 'and' is not required and the sentence on either side is a clause, which is not required - Incorrect
C. 'In addition to' splits the sentence in to 2 parts, changing the intended meaning of the sentence. Also, 'to win', instead of 'winning', should be used as it is idiomatically correct - Incorrect
D. Correct
E. Placement of 1909 is wrong and 'that' should not be used to refer to people. - Incorrect

Just my line of thought. Please feel free to point out my mistakes.

Correct me if i am wrong, but i think D made a double subject mistake, because we have "A novelist" as a subject and then Salma Lagerlof is another subject. Am i missing something?

Hello.

Nope. "A novelist who...." is an absolutely phrase (or appositive phrase/modifier) that modifies the real subject "Salma Lagerlof". i.e. The Lion, the biggest animal of the cat family, always preys at night. "the biggest animal" is just modifier.

Hope it helps.

But, but... My private totur was always telling me that "AND ALSO" is a redundant usage...
(or was it only in listing items?)
